Suwannee - Planning Your Visit

Helpful Information

Opportunities for outdoor recreation abound throughout the year, although during hunting days, the area is only open to individuals participating in the hunt. These special hunts for the disabled are held on several days in the fall and spring, in conjunction with the adjacent Holton Creek Wildlife Management Area (WMA). Holton Creek WMA is also open for activities such as horseback riding, bicycling and fishing, which are not permitted at Suwannee Ridge. Suwannee Ridge hosts resident populations of protected species such as gopher tortoises and fox squirrels as well a variety of migratory warblers and other seasonal wildlife.
